CLEVELAND

Cleveland police are seeking information on a gunman who killed a 5-year-old girl and shot her mother in the head while the two sat in a vehicle in a residential neighborhood Sunday.

Authorities on Monday identified the slain girl as Jermani Brooks of Cleveland. Her mother, 33-year-old Noni Brooks, was in fair condition Monday at MetroHealth Medical Center.

The shooting occurred about 11 p.m. Sunday on the city’s west side. Police say a man in a green SUV pulled up to the vehicle, got out and opened fire, striking the two victims. He then fled.

Police tracking the vehicle and the suspect surrounded an address in the city briefly on Monday with SWAT team negotiators. The suspect was not located.

The family released a statement requesting privacy.
